I hope his appeal is granted. This young man isn't an illegal immigrant, he's a victim of being trafficked as a minor. I don't sign many petitions, but I signed this one.

However he was trafficked from Albania---- a country that Pres. Macron recently vetoed membership of the EU! (others also voted against).---
So much for the European unity they keep going on about!!

(Usually the UK Home Office changes the decision on appeal, in such cases as this.)

And even if he were illegally present in the country, who actually cares in this case?

Sometimes, the law is an ass.

In what way do I resemble 'Boiler'???

The boy was trafficked from Albania. In answer to the OP ----I was pointing out that the UK is not the only "small minded" European country!!!

Also the UK Home Office has a habit of giving a deportation order 'now' and change the decision 'after' appeal.

And this is a relevant comment why?

Boris Johnson isn't the only unprincipled politician either.

The US isn't the only country with a high violence rate.

France isn't the only country where they eat garlic.

Relevant because the boy's home country has been prevented from joining an association of nations which is discussed positively at greatlength on many threads on TIO!!! (If they had joined there would have been no problem.)
Along with yet more negative criticism of the UK.
(The UK Home Office decisions are not an indicator of the 'mindset' of the UK.)
